Best CBD Pre-Rolls 2020: Our Favorite CBD Pre-Rolls And Hemp Cigarettes

Smoking hemp can be relaxing and calming, even pain relieving, and pre-rolls (“joints”) or hemp cigarettes make this experience even more convenient. That’s why we selected the best CBD pre-rolls for your enjoyment.

When we started this website, it was hard to even find CBD oil. Nowadays, there’s been an explosion in CBD products with thousands available on the market. Hemp flower is an especially fast-growing category. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, you can legally smoke hemp anywhere in the U.S. Many websites and stores now sell hemp in both “loose flower” (nuggets of smokable hemp) or pre-rolled hemp cigarettes (hemp joints or CBD pre-rolls). Some brands also now make cigarette style hemp smokes, which resemble the tobacco version but with less harmful contents.

In this article we’ve selected our 9 favorite CBD pre-rolls and hemp cigarettes. There’s lots of competition out there, but these brands impressed us the most with their quality, flavor, high-quality packaging and overall transparency and sustainability.

Before we get to our reviews of the best CBD pre-rolls, let’s take a look at why people choose to smoke hemp. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just a substitute for psychoactive cannabis (“marijuana”)

Why do people smoke CBD pre-rolls?

Smoking CBD pre-rolls and hemp cigarettes is relaxing and can be one of the fastest and most efficient ways to feel the effects of this supplement.

People used to say that, unlike “marijuana,” you can’t smoke hemp. Hemp comes in many forms, and it’s true that hemp grown for seeds, fabric or fiber isn’t good for smoking. But today many hemp growers and breeders are crafting special strains of hemp especially designed to be smoked. Much like psychoactive cannabis, hemp strains often have colorful names like Lifter, Suzy Q, and even Trump (in honor of the bill he signed legalizing hemp). 

CBD consumers report deep relaxation and immediate relief from smoking hemp flower.

Just like taking CBD oil, smoking a CBD pre-roll won’t make you “feel high.” However, smoking hemp is an extremely rapid way to feel the benefits of CBD. For example, many consumers report that smoking (or vaping or otherwise inhaling) offers extremely rapid relief to acute symptoms of anxiety, stress or pain. Smoking CBD is one of the most bioavailable forms of CBD. That means it’s absorbed rapidly and efficiently by the body. 

At Ministry of Hemp, we’ve discovered that we enjoy smoking CBD pre-rolls any time we want to feel more relaxed but retain some focus and mental clarity. It’s great in the morning, before or after a workout, or for winding down at the end of the day. Some people might even use CBD pre-rolls or hemp cigarettes to quit smoking tobacco.

What about my health?

While smoking cannabis or hemp isn’t linked to cancer like tobacco, there could still be harm to your lungs from repeated use. Inhaling any kind of smoke could have negative health consequences. 

We’re not doctors, and we can’t tell you whether the risks of smoking hemp outweigh the benefits. Alternatives could include vaping or “dabbing” CBD isolate powder, CBD oils or edibles (although these are slower to take effect), even using a CBD inhaler.  

Is it legal to smoke CBD pre-rolls?

Unlike psychoactive cannabis (“marijuana”), you can legally smoke CBD pre-rolls in all 50 states. 

Even so, we recommend discretion, depending on where you live and what you are doing. Legal hemp remains visually similar to its illegal cousin, and smells the same too. Most police officers lack the ability to differentiate between the two substances. In some cases, like Texas, legal hemp actually led to a decrease in marijuana arrests. But police responses differ from officer to officer, place to place and situation to situation. 

If you were arrested for legal hemp, you might beat the court case or even get your charges dropped. However, you’d still undergo a costly and potentially harmful encounter with the police and legal system.

We also can’t guarantee that it’s safe to smoke CBD pre-rolls and take a drug test. Legal hemp still contains tiny amounts of THC (less than 0.3% by law). That won’t make you feel stoned, but could still cause you to test positive on some drug tests.

It’s better to be safe than sorry but, in most cases, it’s perfectly safe to smoke hemp with care.
